    Basic Example

    Used inside the loop this outputs the terms from the people taxonomy for a specific post.

    <?php echo get_the_term_list( $post->ID, 'people', 'People: ', ', ' ); ?>
    

    This would return something like.

    People: <a href="person1">Person 1</a>, <a href="person2">Person 2</a>, ...

    Returning an HTML List

    Used inside the loop this outputs the terms from the styles taxonomy for a specific post as an (x)html list.

    echo get_the_term_list( $post->ID, 'styles', '<ul class="styles"><li>', ',</li><li>', '</li></ul>' );
    

    This would return something like.

    <ul class="styles">
        <li><a href="person1">Style 1</a>,</li> 
        <li><a href="person2">Style 2</a></li>
    </ul>
